Listen to the children cry
As you watch their mothers die
Empires fall before their eyes
Led by a power who all despise

Gaze into the blood red sky
As you watch the blackbirds fly
Feel the warm blood on your hands
This is where your god now stands

Darkness has consumed the light
Angels and demons die from from fright
Though your noble to not give in
This is one war you wont win

Fight until death with sword in hand
Cannot save this tainted land
There is no god to save you now
As rancid sweat drips from your brow

It's as easy as one, two, three
Push the button and you'll see
If you want to kill your enemies
Leave it all up to me

Do you think that we are blind
Power has transformed your mind
Explosions echo in your head
Creating another walking dead

The Ghost of War feeds on your dreams
Laughing as he hears you scream
There's no escape you soon will see
The power was your enemy
